The Norfolk Broads are made up of over 150 miles of navigable waterways. In this lecture, Professor Tom Williamson will explain how and why humans contributed to the landscape, describing how they were first shaped in the Middle Ages, and how they were constantly modified by changes in their function, both social and economic. He will also discuss the profound impact of this 'rural' landscape of industry and commerce, and chart the recent impact of tourism and agribusiness on the environment.
This event has been organised by the East of England regional committee.
This event is recognised by the Society as being suitable professional development for Chartered Geographer and may also be suitable for other professional accreditations.
